Netflix: Subtitles Now Available for PC/Mac Viewing
This is Neil Hunt, Chief Product Officer at Netflix. As I promised last year, I’m pleased to report that today we have enabled closed captioning for some TV episodes and movies that you can watch instantly on your PC or Mac. Although it’s a limited library of content with subtitles available – about 100 titles – we now have released the technology and we will be working to fill in the library over time.
We have similar technology working in the lab for some of our game console, Blu-ray, and DTV platforms, which will roll out in releases starting this fall, along with support for 5.1 audio. It’s a start, with much more to come. You can try it for yourself with most episodes of “Lost” Seasons 1-4. (see link below)
